S^CttonccU 



It is June, 1959, and suddenly and sadly we realize that our high 
school days are over. We have taken one last look at our beloved high 
school and the memories it brings to us. Now we turn our backs to all 
this and search into the darkness and uncertainty of the future- -the 
forbidding future with its pitfalls ready to make us stumble on our 
march towards success and happiness. But do we go into this fight 
unarmed? No, we are armed and inspired with our hard-earned edu- 
cation and enduring friendships which will keep us striving forward 
until we have reached our goals. Yes, we have all been prepared for 
the unknown future by our teachers who have guided us with a patient 
hand during our wonderful, although sometimes difficult, four years 
at Williamsburg High School. 

We, the class of 1959, are ready for this big challenge and accept 
it proudly. 



*D ecttc<ztto*t . . . 




We, the class of 1959, proudly and ap- 
preciatively dedicate "The Tattler" to 



Mrs. Frances Grinnell, whose time, effort, 



friendliness, and willingness to help, have 
made our four years at Williamsburg High 
School a truly rewarding experience.

We entered Williamsburg High School with great hopes for our next four years. Our number was then thirty- 
four, but we lost Ferrelyn Dillard during the course of the year. We were enthusiastically led by our class officers. 
They were as follows: President. William Reeves; Vice-President, Steven Thayer; Secretary, Esther Snow; Treas- 
urer, Andrea Culver; Historian, Kathy Lavalle. When the seniors told usit was time for Freshman Reception we were 
sure we'd never pull through; but surprisingly enough, everyone survived. 

Our sophomore year brought us three more students, Dorcas Houle, Harry Williston, and Richard Muraski, but 
took from us Richard Warren, Beverly LaCasse, Gerald Magdalenski, Sandra Bernier, William Reeves, Stephen John- 
son, Dennis Larkin, and Richard Muraski who was with us but for a few weeks. 

Our officers that year were: President, Brian King; Vice-President, Marian Gagnon; Secretary, Esther Snow; 
Treasurer, Andrea Culver; Historian, Bethany Hemenway. Finding the treasury very meager, we decided to sponsor 
a food sale which proved to be lucrative. We also helped with the Christmas Dance which was the project of the 
whole school. 

Our junior year began with the election of class officers as follows: President, Brian King; Vice-President, 
Steven Thayer; Secretary, Esther Snow; Treasurer, Andrea Culver; Historian, Marian Gagnon. 

We gained three students that year; Diane Doggart, Ronald Low, and Otis Sears. However, three others left: 
Connie Baker, Mary Carr, and William McAvoy. 

This was our year to sponsor the prom, and we outdid ourselves decorating the gym to match our theme 
"Garden of Eden." Rod MacLeod's music was featured, and the prom was certainly a success. 

Well, here we are seniors, and so quickly, too. Patricia Morrey, Diane Doggart, and Ronald Low are no longer 
with us and our number is now twenty-five. 

History repeated itself when the officers were the same as the preceding year. 

We sponsored the Freshman Reception; everyone had a lot of fun with the possible exception of the freshmen. 
"We all go through it," we told them, but it didm't make much difference to them. 

We are especially proud of our "Winter Wonderland" dance. It was one of "the" dances of the year, and it- was 
successful. 

Now it is time for us to graduate, after a period of time that hardly seems four months, though it has been four 
years. We shall soon be going our separate ways and can only hope that friendships and fun at Burgy High will not 
be forgotten.

Members of the Class of 1959, friends, relatives, and innocent bystanders. 

Tonight we commemorate the 25th reunion of the Class of 1959. Many of our members are spread all over the 
United States, some are in Europe, and many have stayed right here in Williamsburg. To make our reunion more 
interesting, I have visited with each classmate so that I can tell you tonight what each one is doing. 

One of the most interesting occupations noted is that of Larry Stout, who runs an alligator ranch in his native 
land of Florida. There he searched for "Oscar" deep in the Everglades. Oscar refused to leave the swamp without 
his whole family which had grown to include some forty odd children and grandchildren. 

Martha Hinton is a rocket scientist at Cape Canaveral. She is working on a new style, air-cushioned, two- 
seater rocket expected to reach the moon in about an hour. This model is especially designed for teen-age dates 
so the young people can get a closer look at that moon. Martha also experiments with electric eels, so I 
accompanied her to Mobile, Alabama, to meet a new shipment. 

When we arrived at the pier, I immediately recognized a familiar figure bending over a piece of broken 
machinery on the bow of the ship. Grease rags were hanging out of every pocket, his long beard hung down to his 






18 



chest and was tucked inside his Captain's uniform, of which the two top buttons were unbuttoned. Yes, it was Otis 
Sears. 

Carol Smith is running an orphanage in the hills of West Virginia. With all her baby-sitting experience during 
her high school years, I wasn't surprised that she had made a career of caring for children. 

I met Frank Kuschka on a train bound for Washington. After writing his first song, "The Kuschka Cha-Cha-Cha," 
he became an overnight success. His band travels all over the country playing his rhythmic songs. 

In the nation's capital, Glen Richardson was perched on a soapbox giving a vigorous speech supporting the 
President's foreign policy. A contract with a national baseball club had enabled him to meet many influential 
people; so, when he retired from the sports world, he became an aggressive politician. 

Three of my classmates were in New York City. Judy Breguet had become quite a career girl, being a wonder- 
ful nurse and a part-time model. As we entered the fashion shop in which she modeled, we were greeted by Kathy 
Lavalle. Kathy now owns one of the most successful shops in New York, catering exclusively to Park Avenue 
matrons. 

Then I met Larry Ames hurrying down Fifth Avenue. I inquired why he was wearing such thick lensed glasses, 
and he replied that he was still searching for the right girl. 

Before leaving for Europe, I had time to see Dorcas Houle in that booming metropolis of Southwest Reeds North 
Ferry, New Hampshire. She had gone there to teach in a one room schoolhouse, but because of the demand for 
transportation had gone into the taxi-cab business. Mr. Tonet will be very much pleased to hear about this. 

As I was speeding over the Atlantic, the radio picked up a London station. When the rock and roll song ended, 
Harry Williston's voice startled me. Evidently his interest in radio and music had paid off. He was a guest disc 
jockey for the BBC. The commercial made me listen closely. Harry explained that he was helping out an Ameri- 
can sales representative, Brian King, who was trying to sell black-watch plaid toothpaste to those terribly con- 
servative Londoners. Brian claimed that the toothpaste would not only destroy tooth decay and mouth odor, but 
would cure neuritis, neuralgia, and neuremia all in one operation. 

Irene Timmermann now lives in Germany, and is a photographer's assistant in Frankfort. She recently won a 
pirze for reading one million books. 

John Judd went to Germany to learn more about building roads, so he could take over his father's job and help 
modernize highways in Massachusetts. While there he discovered a hidden talent and is now the star of the Berlin 
Opera. You just never know-- 

I contacted Andrea Culver, who was in Siberia as a missionary. We agreed to fly back to Williamsburg together. 
When I met her, she surprised me with a handsome Russian husband. They seem to be helping relationships between 
our two nations. It took only two hours to cross the Atlantic. Andrea wanted to give her husband a taste of Ameri- 
can night life, so we went to the Williams House that evening. This establishment had changed into a very swank 
nightclub. Dick Roberge is the owner. Every winter he travels abroad looking for new talent for his floor show, of 
which he is the master of ceremonies. 

Among the wonderful acts in the show were Esther Snow and her sister singing duets. You'd never guess that 
Esther is married and the mother of ten lovely children. 

The next day I stopped in to see Charlotte Parker. She had converted her kitchen into a replica of the Snack 
Bar, and was just taking one of her delicious hamburgers off the grill. 

Joe Gagne is the boss of the Grocer's Union, and still works at the A&P. Two years from now he plans to buy 
up all the First National stores in Massachusetts. 

Paul Webb works at a hunting lodge in Goshen. He was a state forester for years, but so many girls were send- 
ing smoke signals to him, the whole forestry service was in chaos, so Paul was forced to resign. 

Emilianna McCoy is in Chesterfield on vacation from her exciting career playing "Kate" in "The Real McCoys." 

Steve Thayer has opened a Fred Astaire dance studio in Northampton. We all know how he loves to dance. 

Marian Gagnon, after teaching school for a few months, met THE man, married, and has five little boys. Her 
wonderful cooking is appreciated at Alexander's restaurant where she works part-time. 

Last, but not least, is Walter Wittshirk. He is in Hollywood as an understudy for Yul Brynner. He studies philos- 
ophy at UCLA when not acting. 

As for myself, there really isn't much to say except that I am still struggling to keep my weight down, my 
bank account up, and my friends from wondering why I'll never believe in "going steady."

With a slight feeling of superiority the Junior Class settled down 
to begin another school year. We got right down to business and 
elected officers to lead our class. They were as follows: President, 
Stanley Gromelski; Vice-president, John Munroe; Secretary, William 
Munroe; Treasurer, Reed Boisjolie; and Historian, Jeannie Breguet. 

We gained two new pupils, Pat Morrey, and Janice Miller, and 
lost two, Tim Mosher and Tina Laughton. The class as a whole 
sponsored a very successful "sock hop" in January, and soon after that 
we began planning for the biggest highlight of the school year- -The 
Junior Prom. 

It was very successful, and next year, as seniors we'll be looking 
back, I'm sure, on all the fun we've had during our junior year.

This fall we returned to school feeling more experienced and 
mature. Our class was split up into two groups; Mr. Branch had half 
and Mrs. Grinnell, the other half. However, after the first week of 
school Mrs. Grinnell was taken sick and a substitute, Mrs. Bart, took 
over our homeroom. We figured we could get away with murder 
with a substitute , but we were mistaken, because Mrs. Bart had two 
teenagers of her own, and in a week she knew us all like a book. 

This year the President of our class is Dan Dunlevy; the Vice- 
president, Billy Ames; Secretary, Susan Clark; Treasurer, David 
Braman; and Historian, Mary Richardson. 

Charles Kellogg was elected treasurer of the newly -organized 
Student Council, and Nicky Warren a representative. 

Our chief activities for this year were a skit for the Christmas 
assembly and a dance in the month of March.

On September 4 our large class of 41 pupils first entered into the routine 
of high school life. We elected the following officers: Barbara Hinton, Presi- 
dent; Andy Burr, Vice-president; Michael Dymerski, Secretary; Neal Menard, 
Treasurer; and Joanne Brooks, Historian. To the newly formed student council 
we elected Gail Mougin. We were rather shy at first and a bit terrified when- 
ever "Freshman Reception" was mentioned, but that much feared night of 
September 26 went by with us not too much for the worse. 

Our first project as a class was the dance which we put on in November. 
This dance netted a large profit; therefore our non-existent treasury got off to 
a good start. In April we put on another dance which also was successful. 

Our future years at Williamsburg High School seem promising and we only 
hope they will be as successful as our first.

This year the first round of the Connecticut Valley Debating Society was held at Williamsburg, and we won 
3 out of 6 debates which put us in a tie for third place in the league. The second round was held at Hopkins 
Academy where we lost all four debates. The third round will be held at Marhar Regional. Our record now stands 
at a discouraging 3 and 7. Mr. Roger took some of us to the Clark University Tournament in Worcester. We have 
been somewhat hampered by lack of experience which has worked itself out with practice, and we are looking 
forward to a better time next year.

The Music Department had a busy year. An extra festival at 
Chicopee in December was attended by a group from our orchestra 
and Glee Club. These people were obliged to prepare for auditions 
before they were accepted. The entire mixed Glee Club prepared an 
audition for the May festival at Hadley. 

Accepted from our music groups for the All-State Festival at 
Hyannis, Massachusetts, in April were for the chorus; Susan Senecal, 
and for the orchestra; Betty Sherk and Kenneth Sherk. 

A spring concert was given in the gymnasium May 15, at which 
time choral numbers were given by the Mixed Glee Club, the Girls' 
Glee Club, and by smaller units such as duets and trios. Instrumental 
numbers were given by the senior orchestra and by smaller ensembles, 
as well as soloists. 

Numbers were prepared by the Glee Club for Class Night and 
graduation.

The 1958-59 Driver Education Class, consisted of thirty-seven 
members, determined to absorb the fundamentals of good driving 
attitudes and appreciations. They fulfilled the minimum require- 
ment of thirty hours of classroom instruction. 

Because of excessive administrative expenses, behind -the- wheel 
training was eliminated. However, students who successfully com- 
pleted the classroom phase of the program were eligible to receive 
the Registry of Motor Vehicles Driver Education Certificate upon 
completion of six hours of behind-the -wheel training at a certified 
commercial driver training school.

In 1959 Williamsburg High School's first Student Council was formed. The election 
of officers and delegates was held in January after a committee of students had drawn 
up a constitution and put on an assembly to present this new constitution to the student 
body. It was unanimously accepted, and plans were made for the first student council 
election. Elected to lead Williamsburg Student Council were Brian King, President; 
Steven Thayer, Vice-President; Charles Kellogg, Treasurer; Gail Mougin, Secretary. 
The class representatives were Andrea Culver, Senior Class Representative; Betty Sherk 
and Richard Warren, Junior Class Representatives; Nick Warren, Sophomore Class 
Representative; Joel Hurd, Eighth Grade Representative; Carol Otis, Seventh Grade 
Representative. 

Ideas for Student Council activities were received from a meeting with the Holy- 
oke High School Student Council. Our first big activity was to provide for a second bus 
to the Clark School game and dance and also to the Tournament games. We also 
sponsored a dance in March to swell our treasury. During the school year we worked 
on a student handbook and revising the constitution which we found had many short- 
comings. 

Considering everything we had a successful year, and we all sincerely feel that in 
future years the Student Council will play a bigger and better part in the life of 
Williamsburg High School.

The Cheerleaders this year are happy to report that we 
have had a fairly good season. 

Last year we lost Sandy Kmit, Ellie Leonard, and Terry 
Smith, so this year we added Beverly Morin, Janice Miller, 
and Marilyn Boucher to take their places. 

With the changing of styles we also felt the need for 
changing our uniforms. This new improvement was liked by 
all. 

In May we plan to attend a cheering clinic at Springfield 
College so that we will be able to study the new ideas and 
styles of cheering. 

Those of us who are leaving this year wish those whom 
we are leaving behind a lot of luck, and we hope that they 
will have as much fun as we have had.

The 1958-59 season was quite successful for our girls' 
basketball team. The girls entered the Franklin League 
again this year and won the championship. . To enable us to 
play more games, yet keep fairly near this area, we played 
some teams from larger schools, such as Northampton High 
School, Cooley Dickinson Nurses, and Saint Michaels'. 
Northampton and the nurses accounted for 4 of our 5 losses , 
the fifth of which was to the Alumnae. All in all through 
the untiring efforts of our coach, Mrs. Kmit, managers 
Martha Morrey and Paulette LaPalm, and the team, we ended 
with 8 wins, 5 losses, and 1 tie, a season of which we are all 
quite proud. 

For the first time this year, we were happy to have a 
J.V. team made up of freshmen and sophomores. These girls 
played a total of six games, with a 3-3 won and lost record. 
This program has given valuable experience to these girls 
which will aid in building stronger teams in the future.

The Williamsburg countryside viewed a new sport this fall as the first cross-country team to represent 
Williamsburg High School went into action. For many weeks the team prepared strenuously for their three meets. 
They were seen running up hills, down hills, over dirt roads and across meadows. This hearty band of runners soon 
captured the admiration of not only the student body, but also many townspeople, and our meets were enthusiasti- 
cally attended. 

The first meet was at Charlemont where the course was found to be quite hilly although not too difficult. 
This fact may be seen by the results of the race which Burgy won 21 to 46. Williamsburg placed four men among 
the first five finishers with Walt Wittshirk barely being edged at the finish. In a return meet with Charlemont at 
Williamsburg the Burgy High team again won handily 16 to 59. Dan Dunlevy finished first to lead our team to a 
nearly perfect race. In our last run against a highly experienced Amherst Regional High School team on the 
Amherst College Freshman Course we were again victorious. The final score in this meet was 20 to 39, with 
Dan Dunlevy again leading the two teams. 

An undefeated season climaxed our first cross-country effort and much credit is due the members of our squad. 
Happily, many of our runners are underclassmen, who, with added experience will give Williamsburg High School 
its successful teams of the future.

The Williamsburg High School basketball team started to practice 
early in October in preparation for their first game on December 16. 
Overconfidence and inexperience led to their downfall in the first 
two games. The team broke into the win column in their next game 
with a lopsided victory over Chicopee Vocational. From that point, 
the team was more successful and concluded the season with 14 vic- 
tories in 22 contests. Two particular events highlighted the season: 
an 8 point victory over a strong Belchertown team; and secondly, the 
fact that they lost only one game on their home court. 

In the 16th annual Tri-State Tourney, Williamsburg moved to the 
final round of the consolation event, but was defeated in an overtime 
contest 39-36 by Sanderson Academy. 

The team was led throughout the yearby theirhigh-scoring captain, 
Brian King. The play -making of Tim Moynahan combined with 
Ricky Graves' driving, and the shooting and rebounding of Steve Thayer, 
Paul Webb, John Judd, and Will Samson produced a fairly well- 
balanced floor attack. Playing their last game in Burgy uniforms are 
Brian King, Paul Webb, Glenn Richardson, John Judd, and Steve Thayer. 
Replacing these boys next year and in future years will be a fine group 
of J.V. ballplayers, who received a great deal of experience from 8 
games this year.

"Mr. Tonet's Pride and Joy" 



This year we were again fortunate to have a successful Basketball Banquet sponsored 
by the Citizens' Committee. 

After a delicious turkey dinner the program began with Mr. Branch as master of 
ceremonies. Mr. Richard and Mr. Roger each gave a brief talk congratulating both Mr. 
Tonet and Mrs. Kmit. Team members and cheerleaders were surprised and in many 
cases embarrassed when their baby pictures were flashed on a large screen for all to see. 

However, Mr. Tonet was also on the receiving end of good-natured pranks, in the 
form of "Earl Tonet, This Is Your Life." We learned many deep dark secrets of our 
beloved coach, and we were glad to find his youth much like our own. 

The highlight of the evening came, of course, with the presentation of awards. Mr. 
Tonet presented each of his senior boys with trophies. Those receiving them were Paul 
Webb, Brian King, Steven Thayer, Glenn Richardson, and John Judd. The remainder of 
the boys received tie clasps. Otis Sears and Harry Williston received trophies for their 
excellent work as managers. Brian King and Rickie Graves shared honors for the W. 
Malcolm Heath Memorial Plaque awarded for foul shooting. 

Mrs. Kmit awarded trophies to her senior girls, Esther Snow, Judy Breguet, and 
Andrea Culver. The rest of the team and the cheerleaders received lipsticks and mir- 
rors. 

It was a fitting climax to the season and one which will long be remembered by 
those who, because of graduation, participated for the last time.
